"100% available over the last 10 years"

Administrator, Mid-Market (201-500 employees)

What do you like best?

Because of the built-in mirror function, our DataCore storage cluster has an 100% availability quote over the last ten years. You can update, migrate, power off one server and the other one goes seamlessly active. Also the user-friendly admin interface helps new IT staff to handle the software when they are new in the company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a very small in-house IT Team, and our systems have to be 100% available. DataCore helps us to reach this. Another plus is the price when you compare it to competitors, e.g., Dell EMC. DataCore often releases best practice guides that help you to configure the software and the systems that host it. You don't have to be a deep dive technician to get the most out of the software.

Good Performance, Saves Money, And Has Eliminated Our Storage-Related Downtime

4.5
What is most valuable?

Performance boost (MegaCash, Parallel I/O technology) and Continuous data protection (CDP) are the features we love most because security and being productive are big points for us. DataCore is helping us focus on our core business and keep it running, which is important for our customer success. Supporting of Automated-Storage-Tiering (AST) is a good feature that saves money.

How has it helped my organization?

In the time of using DataCore SANsymphony Hyperconverged Infrastructure, we had no storage-related downtime in our environment. The server and storage functionality works, and maintenance is easier to handle depending on the redundancy. DataCore is an administrator's and users' friend.

A Flexible And Efficient Solution For Disaster Recovery

Rog Fed

How has it helped my organization?

DataCore has been doing software-defined storage since back before SDS was even a buzzword. It has provided a great deal of flexibility, performance, and efficiency for our Enterprise SAN. We are not tied to any one hardware vendor and over the nineteen years that we've had DataCore, we have gone through various models of IBM servers to Dell servers as well as various storage arrays from IBM, Dot Hill, XIO, Kaminario, and Dell (all with some of the same data from year one).

What is most valuable?

DataCore's ability to seamlessly move virtual volume data between storage pools as well as their synchronous mirroring has made maintenance and disaster recovery planning achievable. DataCore's auto-tiering feature also allows us to use our SSD arrays efficiently.

Auto-Tiering Improves Performance By Automatically Balancing Demands For Storage

4.5
What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is auto-tiering, which allows for storage pools containing different speed storage systems and the data automatically moved to the most appropriate pool.

How has it helped my organization?

DataCore has helped provide flexible, highly available, high-performance storage that otherwise would have been outside our price range.

Enables Us To Use Much Less Hardware For Storage Which Leads To Lower Power Consumption And Less Heat

4
What is most valuable?

The features I have found most valuable are the active-active, or so-called grid technology, and the integration into our VMware vCenter. Our vCenter is now much easier to manage.

How has it helped my organization?

DataCore SANsymphony has improved our organization by using much less hardware for storage. The power consumption and heat have decreased, so we were able to shut down one air conditioner. Also, it is a faster storage system.

How would you describe DataCore SDS to a friend or colleague?

Use off-the-shelf hardware to gain HA storage.

What is our primary use case?

We use the DataCore software to provide (virtual) storage hardware to our virtualisation environment (VMware ESX).

How has it helped my organization?

• SANsymphony gives us the possibility to get storage redundancy with a very good ROI. • It also helps us to get a more balanced performance of our storage systems.

“I run a very small hyper-converged virtual environment when compared to what this software is capable of running. I have now been running it for almost 2 years now and it has run flawlessly in my VMware environment. What little support I have needed has been EXCELLENT and that was only when I installed the latest updates. I have had no complaints from the employees with regards to slowness as to what programs that reside on the 2 servers that run the DataCore software. It has been a very excellent experience with DataCore!”
